Carlotta is reportedly hurt that Alexander publicly said she was jealous over their close bond and is 'devastated' over their split.  

A source told the Sun: 'She's upset by his accusations of jealousy and doesn't believe he didn't have romantic feelings for Maura.

'As far as she's concerned they were happy, then she came on the scene and their marriage fell apart.'

MailOnline have contacted representatives for Carlotta, Alexander and Maura.

This comes after Alexander spoke candidly about the breakdown of his marriage and said of his now-estranged wife: 'I didn't want to lead her on anymore.'

Alexander admitted that his 'close bond' with Maura was tough for Carlotta to witness, with their relationship eventually breaking down.

Last month, Alexander confirmed that he had separated from his ice skater wife, in a statement posted to his Instagram stories.

He wrote: 'I'm Sorry I have been quiet on social media recently but it's been a tough time for me personally.

'Carlotta and I have separated. Although it saddens me that we can no longer be together, I feel this is best for both of us. 

'I'm looking forward to what the future will bring but in the meantime let's all say home and stay safe.'

And in an interview with The Sun, Alexander opened up about the factors that ended his four-year marriage to the Canadian native.

He said: 'I think Carlotta found it hard to see me close, yet so professional, with Maura. It had an impact on her.

'I told Carlotta we needed a break but I knew it was for good. I didn't want to lead her on any more. She was shocked at how ­serious it was.'

He went on to say that it was his decision to call time on their union, adding that Carlotta was 'very upset'.

He added: 'Several times I had to explain to Carlotta that Maura and I were just friends. Once the rumours start, it becomes a ­conversation - it was hard for Maura being called a homewrecker online.'

Alexander also stated that he and the former grid girl became 'emotionally dependent' on each other as the pressure of competition intensified.
